  1. A tough game to recommend, even though it is a well-done game.
  2. 45
    Horrid control combined with a poor interface leaves Combat Medic gasping for air on the battlefield.
  3. It's an unusual idea, and certainly an interesting one, but as you play, you'll find that Combat Medic probably wasn't the best idea for a game.
  4. Unfortunately, these "real-world" feelings are nothing more than lapses in programming in this action/simulation.

    A great concept gone horribly wrong... It's too short, too dull, and too poorly executed. [Oct 2002, p.75]

    Chances are, you'll have more fun reading a medical textbook. [August 2002, p.69]

    Unless you're a medical student desiring to work triage, avoid this game like a bullet in the head. [Sept 2002, p.92]

    This is a FANTASTIC GAME with one caveat. You must have an interest in emergency medicine. I’m a former medic and active scientist. So IThis is a FANTASTIC GAME with one caveat. You must have an interest in emergency medicine. I’m a former medic and active scientist. So I love this game. I’m also a volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol (United States Air Force Auxiliary). I’m with their emergency services ground team and I help train cadets with our cadet program (think JROTC for ages 12-21). I would not suggest his game for just anyone, but for those who have a desire to go into emergency medicine I can’t suggest it enough. It is VERY realistic. The triage, the procedures and equipment. Even the medication is often exactly the right protocol. I’ve had cadets who hare gamers, who also wish to become medics and I often suggest this game. Basically this is to medics what a good flight simulator is to pilots. Now, if you have no interest in medicine, you’ll probably hate it.

    Best regards

    Misses realism on many aspects there are video issues and must be run in 640x480 on winXP, very slow operation. With a few added detail could Misses realism on many aspects there are video issues and must be run in 640x480 on winXP, very slow operation. With a few added detail could be an outstanding game and great training tool for new medics. Expand
